    After their near-defeat in the Second World War and subsequent bailing out by America, Britain's self-image was devastated. In 1952, upper-class war monger Ian Fleming set out to restore dignity to the English with the introduction of his new British hero James Bond. Bond was the epitome of all things high-class and intelligent, and this world of glamorous secret agents enthralled the nation. In 'The Man Who Saved Britain,' Simon Winder tells the story of the creation of the iconic spy and what Bond's evolution says about the culture around the character. An engaging and unique read, this book will delight fans of Bond and cultural history alike.
